Maybelline New York The Magnum Big Shot Volum’Express Waterproof Mascara Review | Shades and Highlights

Hi guys! 

I know I have been MIA here in my beauty blog. I haven't updated for a year!
There had been a lot going on but don't worry, I am back to writing makeup reviews for you guys and I hope I will still be able to help you in my own little way through this platform. 

Okay so, now that I am back, I am going to share what I have been obsessing when it comes to makeup - I have been so obsessed  Maybelline New York's The Magnum Big Shot Volum’Express Waterproof Mascara!

Maybe I'm already late to this mascara hype or I have discovered this mascara too late compared to you guys but hey! I'm still here for the real tea!!! *sips imaginary tea*

Anyways, so here it is...

It is in gold and has a regular-sized wand.

About to repurchase this as it absolutely gives my lashes life! The volumizing effect is superb as you can see below.⠀

See the difference compared to my my bare lashes? Crazy right?⠀
Taking it off is not as difficult as you think, provided that it is waterproof.
 I just take one cotton ball, add few drops of baby oil, and wipe away! 

Then, proceed with cleansing your face and all of your skincare routine. Just make sure that before you go to sleep, that all the oils are washed off from your eyelids. We don’t want irritated eyes in the morning! Or worse, getting a pink eye from all the oil buildup! 

I haven’t tried removing with micellar water but I will be testing it out in a few weeks as I am just waiting for my Garnier micellar water to arrive, which I will do a review soon! I will keep you posted. ⠀

Waterproof? YES
Will it smudge? - NOPE!
Budget-friendly? YES
Availability: in-store (supermarkets, drugstores, malls, stalls, and online)

Have you tried this mascara? Or do you have any mascara that you would recommend for me to try? let me know in the comments.

Swatch It Up: Nichido Ultra Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color in Bespoke + First Impressions | Shades and Highlights

Are you on a tight budget but still want to get your hands on a matte lip color that won't budge and hurt your pocket? Well, I got you covered! 

Here's the Nichido Ultra Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color in the shade Bespoke.

I recently discovered this lippie whilst I was looking at mascaras and the lady told me that this is one of their best sellers. So, I swatched it and instantly fell in love with it. It was an impulse buy but totally worth it. 

The color payoff is great and so pigmented. It also states on the tube that it is paraben free which is amazing!

It's staying power is also incredible! It will last for a good 6 hours. It is buildable and feels light. My tip is to prime your lips first with a primer or a lip balm for a smooth application. It also has this slight buttery/cakey smell that reminds me of NYX's butter gloss.

So, for the price, this costs just less than Php300 or about $5-6. 

Here's a swatch of Nichido Ultra Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color in Bespoke on my lips.
